Stanley Spencer could see the butcher's shop, where sausages were made, from the bedroom window of the house 'Fernley' in Cookham High Street where he lived as a child. Spencer made a drawing of the scene in 1935 and, not unusually for him, made an oil painting from it 16 years later. On the reverse of the drawing he records seeing the butchers and how they made the sausages.
